A Letter From the Director

Every day I wake up amazed that I have the privilege of living in the Middle Kingdom, China, and have the honor of serving staff, students, and parents from around the world.  Kunming International Academy, KIA, is home to students from 29 different nations.  Although it is an American styled international school, it has embraced a global perspective on education. 

Students are encouraged to Learn, Love, and Lead.  To foster these characteristics, we have created a supportive environment that allows students to take risks while exploring knowledge, and formulating a worldview to lead from.  KIA gives students the individual attention they need while preparing them for the world. We would love to partner with you on the journey of educating your child.

I would like to extend to you an invitation to come to KIA and experience the world.  Please enjoy exploring our website and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


Marina J. Lytle,
Kunming International Academy Director
